If 200. was my budget I'd look at this one:

There is a lot of people in the forum talking about the viper ...but I cant buy it (is not available in my country and swfa dont sell overseas )..I can choose most of other "classic" brands

Of the ones you mentioned either the new redfield 2-7 or the sightron would be my choice.

since you can't get the viper, I'd say go with the redfield.

I have two Redfield Golden 5-Star scopes and they are nice - not as good as some of the new ones in their price point - but close.  If the widefield looks good, that should work.  What will you be using this set-up for?

Sightron for me............if you can live with a 4X fixed. I have one and it's rather decent.

Has anyone tried the new Pentax GAMESEEKER 30 being sold by SWFA? Looks good for under $200.00.
